spotlight search, subfolders
« on: June 14, 2019, 05:36:14 AM »
Good day,

Since a couple of days when I search through spotlight, PM5 includes also relevant files on the subfolders. How can I spotlight search only the opened folder?

Thanks,

Click on the magnifying glass and choose Only Search Contact Sheet Items.  But you'll probably need to open the parent folder first or it will continue to accept the items in the child folders.

HTH,

Thanks,
- I did open the parent folder only
- I did select "Only select contact sheet items"

I still get the sub-directories images...

Interesting, I can reproduce the issue. Perhaps this is not a PM5 issue (it hasn't been updated recently), but a change in how Spotlight works. What OS version are you using?
